The other 645/645n donīt need, because the mirror is very smoth and damped, it was only put there in the 645nII because many people donīt know that.

It was only a markting strategety the implementation of that function on the last 645nII.

The customizable functions on the P645N had to be reset by the factory-- but the factory service center no longer performs this customization. The 645NII allows the end user to change these parameters. The P645NII also has a matte finish, and additional data/electrical contacts in the film insert/back well, supposedly added to adapt it to a digital sensor insert (a migration path to digital that never materialized).

I owned a Pentax 645 (first model) and three lenses for about a year. The results were good,
but the LCD-pushbutton interface left me cold and the motorized-only advance is very noisy.

FWIW anyone who has ever tried to load 220 film on a developing reel will switch to 120.

How about hanging a roll of 220 up to dry?
